Similarly, gratitude or memory jars can be thoughtful gifts. Here’s how to put one together:
- Contact friends and family members of the recipient and have them submit special memories, a favorite photo, or something they appreciate about the person.
- Place these all in a jar, decorated box, or special journal.
- Give the jar to the recipient and encourage him to choose one memory each day during the upcoming year so he can see what other people cherish about him.
